Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 11:3-7.


Leviticus 11:6

_ _ the hare — Two species of hare must have been pointed at: the Sinai hare, the hare of the desert, small and generally brown; the other, the hare of Palestine and Syria, about the size and appearance of that known in our own country. Neither the hare nor the coney are really ruminating. They only appear to be so from working the jaws on the grasses they live on. They are not cloven-footed; and besides, it is said that from the great quantity of down upon them, they are very much subject to vermin — that in order to expel these, they eat poisonous plants, and if used as food while in that state, they are most deleterious [Whitlaw].

Matthew Henry's Commentary
